YOU can’t possibly think you can just get away with serving corned beef and onions seven times a week, can you? We asked for help from restaurateur, cookbook author, and morning show chef Myke “Tatung” Sarthou on how to convert canned goods and pantry staples into dishes that even you can look forward to serving and eating.

These recipes come from Mr. Sarthou’s YouTube channel, Simpol (www.youtube.com/user/Cheftatung), and his Facebook page (facebook.com/lutongsimpol/). Links to the instructional videos can be found at the end of the recipes.
